It’s cold here in Paris with snow on the way and like any other place that gets cold weather, comfort food is the norm. One of the dishes served in France (not macarroni and cheese or chili) when it’s cold is Pot au Feu which is a boiled beef and vegetable dinner. It’s very good. We went with a friend to a restaurant near her apartment called le Roi de Pot au Feu where this dish is a speciality. It’s small and crowded-luckily, no longer smokey-and the table are covered with the famous French red and white checked table clothes with napkins to match.
Here it is. I actually had a salad with the beef on top with a few vegetables and vinaigarette which I love. The waiter wasn’t happy with me though. He said I needed a hot dish on such a cold night. It was so good that I think I will go back for lunch and have it again.
My friend putting mustard on her plate to eat with the beef. Most French people use it with meat. I do know one French person who doesn’t like it and I know two Frenchmen who don’t like cheese, so there you go.
